Digital Tracing with TrailCatcher

Tate Exchange

TrailCatcher, as part of Physical Digital Flow workshop, was presented at Tate Exchange Studio Complex, January 2018.


The workshop questions how contemporary artistic practice have to play with the interfaces between the physical and digital world. 


We walk the visitors through three stages:

      Tactile Modelling

      Kinetic Audio

      Digital Tracing


With TrailCatcher, visitors are enabled to accumulate digital trace of the movement they enact in front of the camera. Watched by computer vision and processed into cascade of lines, visitors showed a variety of responses: immerse in subtle dances, play with intervals of movement and stillness, or just tentatively scratch head to see what happens.


Some of screengrams of participants' interactions were uploaded via twitter bot on here:
